BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- An economic conference is slated to be held in the Gaza Strip in November, one of the conference's organizers said Friday.

Palestinian businessman Munib al-Masri told Ma'an that the main goal of the conference would be to encourage entrepreneurs from Palestine and other Arab countries to invest in projects in the Gaza Strip.

The conference's conveners will seek to develop electricity, water, and telecommunications networks in Gaza, al-Masri said.

"We want to implement the will of the late Palestinian president Yasser Arafat, who wanted Gaza to be the Singapore of the Mediterranean," he told Ma'an.

Is the same late Palestinian president Yasser Arafat, who wanted Gaza to be the Singapore of the Mediterranean, who became famous, as the most infamous embezzler of the Mediterranean.

Good idea!It'll remind Arab leaders how xenophobic Zionism raped &scarred the'The Bride' of the Mediterranean Sea & her deep,rich history(ancient &modern)of multiculture,pluralism,mobility &progress & turned it into a refugee camp for non-Jews,guarded by bigotted settlers with no ancestral link to,or respect for Palestine,a hub of international trade.It cradles the balance between West & East.Why do you think the Zionists wanted it?MONEY&PROFIT!Palestine trumps Singapore &'Brand Israel'combined!

Until Hamas gives up its aggression - ALL its aggression - against Israel, Gaza will be nothing but a money burn barrel, where Israel will destroy everything built with investment money in a major response to ongoing attacks.
